Please note that some small time adjustments were made for waiting for targets; with 2 not in use due to a huge hornet nest between them and another that was not functioning –we did run a little short. 20 athletes today!

Also, please welcome Bridget Collins from Brainerd, a total newcomer to the sport—who jumped into the Novice class when I promised her some easier ‘prone on standing’ targets for the two middle shooting stages!! And visitor Haley Finch from Anchorage, who was the top shooter of the day on a borrowed bolt action rifle that wasn’t fit to her!! 1,1,0,1!!!

Our congratulations to the top finishers:

Cheresa Bouley won the women’s list by about 2 minutes over Haley Finch, the first Youth W, and Annelise Baird for the top <17 W results!!

On the Men’s side—Carson Peterson continues his notable podium journeys from VT with a decisive win over Junior Ryan Houseman! Carson is skiing strong, and his prone was looking really nice at 1,0!! Sergei Viskovatykh was the top <17 M, trimming his penalties down today to 8/20 compared to recent results!! 

All in all, it was a great day, with the rain holding off!! 

And a special thanks to Tom Binsfeld and Chad Bouley for blowing acorns early this morning!! The blowers were going when I arrived at 7:30!! As of yesterday, the courses were not skiable!!

Elk River Summer Biathlon #2 – July 23, 2023 – RESULTS

The following adjustments were made from the official sheets printed before the race:

  • 10 seconds were given back to Saylor for range issues.
  • 5 seconds were given back to Caleb, also for range issues.
  • In the excitement of the pursuit start, I failed to ghost Lauren. To correct this, Audry’s, Irina’s, and Maeve’s start times were moved up 5 seconds from the original sheet, reflecting their true start time.

Please let me know of any corrections or adjustments needed.
